9/11 Memorial

(photo by me)

No matter how many years have passed, September 11th is one of those days that will always feel like it was yesterday. Nostalgia kicked in as Tyler and I just visited the 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel (one of the recovery centers) two weeks ago. Having the opportunity to pay our respects to the victims lost while witnessing the One World Trade Center being built was emotional and quite surreal. 

As President Bush said, "Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America." Today is a day to remember. Remember those who lost their lives on this day. Remember those who have fought and continue to fight for our country. Our liberty. Our freedom. 

Remember how blessed we are to be the ones here remembering it. 

xx, Allie
